  • Capra hircus is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe, it is a member of the family Bovidae and is closely related to the sheep as both are in the goat-antelope subfamily Caprinae. There are over 300 distinct breeds of goat. Goats are one of the oldest domesticated species, and have been used for their milk, meat, hair, and skins over much of the world[1][2].
